Well.. it is a press release available anywhere but it is pretty lame that he also copied the "CenDyne Lives Again".

People steal our stuff all the time. Even well known and respected places have done it. It's pretty obvious when our pictures show up somewhere else.. and they still have the watermark! Idiots.

not only the "CenDyne Lives Again!?", but also the ending sentence "It sounds like CenDyne drives could be making their way back to store shelves very soon. Genica's entire press release can be found here." are copied verbatim.
that's why i figured it was copied. the press statement is public after all

On the other hand, CDRLabs might be the well known and respected place that others steal from. *shrug*
